Dear Andreas,
I know that the Ket (kettenkrad) is not a motorbike but as "he" is the ONLY
one of its "specie" I do not like to consider it a sort of "hybrid" so I
have taken the liberty of cataloguing it in the motorcycles. After all, it
is not an halftrack but, perhaps, an... "half-moto-track"?
I like the Ket very much and I did check your website, made prints
(including the one on the hand crank!) and inserted them in the Ket book.
As you know I also collect 1/32 (54 mm) die cast models and I have the one
by the British Britains firm (a collector item, no longer manufactured).

Going to Beltring? I hope next year you may be able to bring your Ket! I
wish to go there... Well, perhaps in the future, who knows?
Regards from hot (I said HOT!) Italy
